Prince Albert joins Christmas swimmers

The annual Christmas Swim took place this morning at Larvotto Beach, with Prince Albert one of the enthusiastic and very brave participants. About 100 people took to the water (about 11 degrees) in aid of a charity providing schooling to victims of the Thai tsunami. The temperature out of the water was a modest 10 degrees. Most participants were in the water for 10 minutes or more, while supporters and families cheered them on from the beach. PHOTO: Prince Albert regains dry ground at the annual Christmas Swim.
